Default [Q] TWRP for SGH-T889 (T-Mobile Note 2)

Has anybody noticed that when you attempt to restore a rom using TWRP you get stuck at the T-Mobile boot menu? I've tested this on version 2.6.3.0 and 2.6.3.1

Hasn't happened to me but a lot of people are reporting issues with the TWRP recovery. Try CWM next time.

+1 has anyone found the answer? My twrp works fine on any other roms 4.1.1 4.1.2. As soon as I updated to 4.3 and rooted I can back up rom using twrp but when I try to restore rom it just gets into the tmobile 4g screen boot loop.

Update and install recovery through GOOManager.

Works for me (4.3 bootloader) . First time is a little slower to boot.

If you lose root after, you can follow this directions http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2607869
